roomandboard.com is a domain with good visibility.

Conclusion: For some key terms, even providers with weak and average visibility have been able to achieve good positions.

Although there are some domains with very high visibility like roomandboard.com, there are also many domains with rather low visibility in the top 10 on Google in addition to the relevant keywords.

Overall assessment: There is a high and stable demand for furniture configurators or especially cabinet or sofa configurators on the Internet. This demand is already being met by some suppliers with more or less high visibility.

However, domains with low visibility are sometimes found at the top of search results, depending on the keyword entered.

With an intelligent selection of keywords e.g. in the long tail area, many interested visitors could be made aware of their own configurator.

Whereby with high probability good positions in the ranking should also be possible for keywords like “Design your own furniture” or “Design your own sofa”.

Due to the relatively low click costs, investments should also be made in Google Ads.

Furniture configurators on the Internet thus offer enormous potential for newcomers to the market at the present time. However, the online marketing strategy should be well-thought-out and professionally implemented with the appropriate investments.

We are specialized in the planning and implementation of furniture configurators and have already realized several projects in the past. As a reference we recommend our furniture configurator for the Belgian company Joli.
